DIY Glitter Tote - The Subtle Statement

Forever 21 has been on their game lately with their faux leather totes. Many I’ve spotted recently are a close second to the real thing (including this Valentino lookalike.) A few weeks ago, I snagged this classic black tote (under $30!), and thought it would be a great DIY (similar here). Pulling inspiration from this fab Reed Krakoff bag, I added a bit more glitz with a statement stripe.

DIY Glitter Tote - The Subtle Statement

What You Need: Tote + Mod Podge + Martha Stewart Glitter + Sponge Brush + Painters Tape

  1. Apply two strips of painters tape, 1.5″ apart.
  2. Paint Mod Podge between the two pieces of tape, using a sponge brush.
  3. Immediately apply a generous amount of fine grain glitter on the Mod Podge.
  4. Let dry, then gently remove tape.

Happy Crafting!
